How to Read a Tree

Hay Festival 2023, 

Did you know that the veins on a leaf can help you find water? In How to Read a Tree: Clues and Patterns from Roots to Leaves, you’ll discover the signs a tree can give you about its past and the landscape surrounding it. Through his journeys, teaching and writing, Tristan Gooley, author of The Walker’s Guide and How to Read Water, has pioneered a renaissance in the rare art of natural navigation. He has both flown solo and sailed single-handed across the Atlantic. He has explored close to home and walked with tribal peoples in some of the most remote regions on Earth.
